Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah took a jibe at the Bharatiya Janata Party, over their decision of approving 10 per cent reservation to economically weaker upper caste and accused the party over their laidback attitude, asserting that it did not intend to give reservation, if the concerned bill was not passed in the Parliament and vice-versa.

Omar on the reservation issue had earlier tweeted his comment

 

Abdullah slammed BJP for remembering the economically weaker sections of the society with the Lok Sabha elections approaching, adding that they took the step after their electoral defeats in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Telangana Assembly elections.

“Only after defeat in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Telangana (Assembly elections), they (BJP) remembered to give reservation after four-and-a-half years. They actually don’t intend to give reservation. If it doesn’t get passed in the Parliament they will say, ‘we tried, but the Parliament didn’t pass it'”, Abdullah, who is the vice-president of National Conference (NC), reportedly said at a gathering.
